City of Roses

A big city with a small-town feel, Portland is home to the country's biggest rose test garden, perched on a hill overlooking downtown.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Oregon Historical Society and Flavel House Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum (in McMinnville), Cannon Beach (Cannon Beach History Center and Museum, Cannon Beach, &more) and Astoria (Astoria Column & Columbia River Maritime Museum). There's much more to do: do a tasting at Willamette Valley Vineyards, admire the striking features of Pittock Mansion, take in nature's colorful creations at Lan Su Chinese Garden, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Oregon Zoo.

To find more things to do, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our Portland trip planner.

Lafayette to Portland is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Pacific Standard Time (PST) is minus 2 hours. Traveling from Lafayette in February, expect Portland to be a bit cooler, temps between 51°F and 38°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to drive to Seattle.

Emerald City

Nicknamed the "Emerald City" because of its abundant evergreen trees, Seattle is the cultural and business center of the Pacific Northwest, as well as a popular holiday destination.
Step off the beaten path and head to Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park and Sequim Bay Scenic Pullout. Venture out of the city with trips to Blue Whole Gallery (in Sequim), Snoqualmie Falls (in Snoqualmie) and Fort Worden State Park (in Port Townsend). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Starbucks Reserve Roastery Seattle, admire the landmark architecture of Sky View Observatory, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Woodland Park Zoo.

To find maps, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, read our Seattle travel route planning app.

Drive from Portland to Seattle in 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 50°F in February, and nighttime lows around 40°F. On the 5th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
